Biographical note:

Malcolm Mackay's acclaimed debut series, the Glasgow Trilogy, has been nominated for countless international prizes. The first of the series, The Necessary Death of Lewis Winter, was shortlisted for the CWA John Creasey New Blood Dagger Award, the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year award, and longlisted for the CWA Steel Dagger Book of the Year Award. Mackay was born in Stornoway on Scotland's Isle of Lewis, where he still lives.

Main description:

In addictive, terse prose that recalls Lee Child, with the sweeping procedural detail of Ian Rankin, The Necessary Death of Lewis Winter introduces a remarkable new voice in crime fiction.

A twenty-nine-year-old man lives alone in his Glasgow flat. The telephone rings; a casual conversation, but behind this a job offer. The clues are there if you know to look for them.

He is an expert. A loner. Freelance. Another job is another job, but what if this organization wants more?

A meeting at a club. An offer. A brief. A target: Lewis Winter, a necessary sacrifice that will be only the first step in an all-out war between crime syndicates the likes of which hasn't been seen for decades.

It's hard to kill a man well. People who do it well know this. People who do it badly find out the hard way. The hard way has consequences.

Review quote:

"A quietly absorbing gangland tale, full of moral ambiguities."—The Times

Review quote:

"A remarkably original debut . . . this is a book that it would be hard not to finish in one sitting . . . a wholly believable and unnerving portrait of organised crime."—Observer

Review quote:

"Glasgow's a tough city and this is a tough book . . . very authentic, very gritty, you can really feel the streets. They call this genre Tartan Noir and absolutely The Necessary Death of Lewis Winter is a first class member of that."—Lee Child

Review quote:

"Remarkable. Mackay's achievement is all the more stunning because drawing on his sublime imagination and innate empathy he has created a cast of characters so vivid - especially MacLean, who knows how hard it is to kill a man - that they live on in the memory long after the final page."—Daily Mail
